Home-Start is a local community network of trained volunteers and expert support helping families with young children through their challenging times. They are there for parents when they need them the most because childhood can’t wait.
Having a young family can be a demanding time. And if other things come along too - bereavements, illness, depression, addiction, job loss or other misfortunes, life can get unbearable. During these hard times children can miss out too.
By focusing on individual needs, home-start helps families identify their own strengths, increasing their potential to make changes that will improve their lives. Home-Start is committed to supporting families that most need help and works hard to engage families who feel excluded within their community.
